Autumn Issue 2022

Tailgate Season. Equestrian Adventures. Coffee Shops.

Take a deep breath. Smell that? Fall is in the air — a crisp breeze heralding chunky sweaters, blazing colors on trees, a hot cider in hand and the holidays just around the corner.

It’s time for a fall escape to LivCo! Autumn always brings endless adventures to the Genesee River Valley, from signature seasonal events, festive food and drink offerings, memorable farm experiences, guided ghost tours, and so much more. Come see for yourself why there is a lot to ‘fall in love’ with in LivCo this season! 

With many people taking road trips as a way to chase away the summer blues, fall is a great time to get out of town and surround yourself with nature. It’s time for changing leaves, cooling temperatures, and an opportunity to stretch into the wide open spaces that big cities tend to lack. Driving our winding country roads is the ideal way to discover LivCo during leaf-peeping season, and autumn hikes through our many nature preserves can’t be topped. Make space for souvenirs or get a head start on that holiday shopping list in the stores of our charming downtowns. 

The urban jungle won't have the fall foliage you're looking for, so journey to Western New York for the temperate weather and beautiful foliage instead. Whatever your journey may be, we hope the moments you have in LivCo become some of your greatest memories. Welcome to fall in LivCo!
